To my humble opinion, Erin Loree is the best abstract painter currently active in the world. She is able to radiate light from within the canvas and/or wood panel, as if here composition were mounted on a light-box. Erin’s creative process is as fascinating as the final result. First, she brushes exquisitely smooth gradients of colour all over the surface.

Once the under-paint has dried, she adds extremely thick blocks of oil (literally emptying tubes and tubes of paint on the canvas) and then swirls it around using her hand-made rubber squeegees. With this signature method, Erin Loree achieves an imitable and innovative abstraction, over-powering with vitality, grace, strength and harmony.

Her aesthetic strengthens the legacy of outstanding Canadian painters (The Group of Seven, Borduas, Riopelle, FerronTousignant) who have been relentlessly seeking to convey the magnificence of the Wild.
